VALENTINE

No diamond I would give you
Could throw a greater shine
To match the beaming sparkle
That lights this heart of mine.

Your eyes like rays of crystal
Dance the prism bar
And form a throw of color
That reaches to my heart.

No string of pearls that I could find
To grace about your neck
Could top the bounding luster
Your very life reflects.

No ring of gold or silver
I place upon your hand
Would herald your royal nature
That makes me stand a man.

No flowers I could send you
Could fill the very air
With sweeter fragrant odor
Than the love you always share.

No box of candy lush and sweet
Could beat your hug and kiss
That satisfies my craving
And makes my life a bliss.

Youíre a living valentine
Thatís all that I can say
So every moments special
With my valentine every day.

Absolutely beautiful! this is one of my favorites, out of all that I've read this week. That first stanza is excellent!

One thought for critique: the rhymes in that last line sound a bit forced - the line "That's all that I can say" sounds a bit like it was thrown in just because it rhymes. I don't think you really need the last stanza - the stanzas before it express all you need to say!
Great poem, I really enjoyed it.
